Testimonials

"In the industry for Voice Over talent, it can be a challenge to find that certain someone with just that...talent. For the 'need it yesterday' experience we had with our biggest client, we had to deliver a high quality brand essence piece and find a talent that captured the true essence of the brand with little prep time. Luckily, Sam was able to listen, understand and deliver a top notch read that we're still getting compliments on today."

Brian McInerney, Head of Production.

Barnstorming, Inc.

"Sam Williamson narrated my novel, “The Last Nephilim”, and he really brought it to life.
Before casting him, I interviewed over thirty talents and what put him over the top was that in addition to possessing a rich clear voice, he suffused each character with personality. The latter is likely a by-product of his of his impressive acting background. I thoroughly enjoyed listening his rendition of my book and very few do-overs and edits were required to get a great product!"

William Guy, PhD MD

Author of The Last Nephilim

“We used Sam for a project, and he did an excellent job. Not only was Sam’s quality of work great, but he also provided us minor, client-requested revisions in a timely manner to help us keep the project on track.”
